Re: OLD IRIS


 Bob:  Try the Historic Iris Preservation Society at
http://eagle.tricities.net/~mikelowe/  .  There are many old blue plicatas.
The most popular being Stepping Out.  Good Luck.

>Hello
> I am new to iris collecting and have a question for someone who has
>done it for awhile. Back in the early seventies some distant relation of
>mine gave me an iris that I still think is the most attractive I have
>ever seen. It was close to white and had marking around the edge that
>looked like someone drew short blue lines on it. Unfortunately I was
>very young and after a couple of moves I lost track of it and never saw
>one like it since. My relation lived across from an old cemetary and
>possibly that is where they got it. I am pretty sure it was a very old
>cultivar.
> Any help or pictures on the internet would be appreciated.
